Disclaimer: I know close to nothing about Amiga, my last memories of using it involve playing Dune 2. Demo scene seems like a place where folks might know a thing or two about how Amiga internals are working - I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. With this out of the way...

Ahoy there! I'm trying to extract assets from a old game, Perihelion [1]. I tried all tool I could find on linux (unadf, xdftool, extract-adf, xdftool etc etc). I tried to mount the discs through fs-uae. The bottom line is, nothing is working. The adf's are of no-dos variety so I'm not even sure if this will be achievable at all. Without undue effort that is.

Is anyone familiar with ripping game content on linux? Alternatively, if someone knows how to do it on windows - and have spare moment or two - I would greatly appreciated assistance here. Link to the game below.

The game itself is nearly three decades old, the game studio doesn't exist anymore, and it was made awailable for download by one of the creator. Licencing / piracy shouldn't be an issue here.
